Fragment of a limestone votive stela decorated with sunk and incised relief. The fragment represents the upper left corner of a larger stela. At the left is a standing image of the lioness goddess Sekhmet, incised into the stone. Her left arm extends down and holds a papyrus stalk scepter (?). Her right arm extends up, crossing her left, holding another object which may be a lotus flower. To the right of Sekhmet is a larger image of Ptah, executed in sunk relief. The god faces right, and wears a wesekh collar over his tight-fitting garment. The broken edges of the stela are badly weathered.
